Here's To 2017! May She Be All We Intend Her To Be!

Oh, how ready I am for a brand new year! Not that the old one was bad!! LOL . . . but I have had my fill of it and am definitely ready to move on! πŸ™‚ I always love the beginning of every year, with all its many opportunities for new beginnings, fresh starts, […]

2016 Reflections

Life has been full to overflowing for me these past many months, so much so that it’s left me almost breathless. But with the warmth of Christmas fading and the end of the year staring me hard in the face, I feel the need to make space to catch my breath and recap here some […]

I’ve been so busy these past couple of weeks, that the time has just flashed past . . . and once again I am falling behind in my posting here.

A Milestone!

Yesterday was my 35th wedding anniversary! πŸ™‚ I guess in today’s world, Hubby and I are a bit of a rarity. My best girlfriend (who was also my maid of honour — and has been married as many years as me) teased me about my 35 years of wedded “bliss”! We had a pretty good […]

It's A Wonderful Life!

I’ve really been in the mood to do faces […]

It Was Inevitable!

Believe it or not, I am STILL finding / making / stealing the time to sketch every single day….but, as you can see, I have gotten a little behind on posting them here to my blog. Life does tend to happen and often interferes with even my best intentions, so I fell behind. It was […]

Sketches and more sketches!

I must admit, it’s been a bit difficult to keep up with my Daily Sketch Challenge as I’ve been so busy lately, but I am determined to end up with at least 366 sketches by the end of the year, so am admittedly proud of myself for having made it through the first few weeks […]

Night At The Museum: Whales and Wolves and Dinosaurs, Oh My!

Last night was the new official Urban Sketchers Ottawa first sketch crawl! There have been other sketch crawl events by this group, but this was the first one as an officially recognized Urban Sketcher Regional Chapter, which was very exciting! And what a night it turned out to be! Record numbers of sketchers turned out […]
